Justin Timberlake And Jimmy Fallon Debut The Evolution Of End Zone Dancing
By Jessica Rawden 1 year ago
Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have collaborated frequently on his late night show in the past. The two are probably most famous for their Late Night with Jimmy Fallon “History of Rap” videos, but last night JT popped up to help Fallon out with a different sort of sketch. The new sketch is called “Evolution of End Zone Dancing” and it follows the guys showing off some dance skills as well as an affection for comedy.
The super sweet moves range from the “I Thought I Just Saw Aaron Hernandez” to “The Tebowing (2012-2013),” which follows the signature Tebew move in 2012 followed by a middle finger thrown up in 2013, since he’s not in the NFL anymore. My personal favorite, however, is the “Worm on a Leash,” which features Fallon getting on the ground and actually doing the worm while Timberlake pretends to pull him along. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone do “The Worm” since I attended a dance in middle school and to watch 38-year-old Fallon get on the floor and tackle the dance move is pretty inspiring/makes me feel lazy.
Don’t take my word for it, though. If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out the full video, above, you can check out some of the big dance moves, courtesy of Buzzfeed and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
In the past year, Timberlake has popped up on Fallon’s late night show to produce “The History of Rap 4,” which features hit songs from Public Enemy, Cypress Hill, and even Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The singer and actor also popped up in a memorable episode to perform with a Barbershop Quartet, although not one out of Skokie, Illinois.
Hopefully, the men’s performance relationship will continue when Jimmy Fallon bumps up to an earlier timeslot on NBC, taking over for Jay Leno next year. Reportedly, Fallon will step up during NBC’s Olympics coverage beginning on February 7, 2014, following Leno’s last night as a host.
